Anyon experience internal pain way before external burns appeared? I'm only starting the 2nd week of treatment. I assume that the focus of the pain is the tumor itself since I can localize the sensation to a pretty narrowly defined location. It's sharp, constant and sometimes throbs. Does this sound familiar to anyone, both in sensation and timeline? Thanks in advance for all responses.

I didn't have any pain like what you describe during early radiation treatments.  I had burn problems later on, so be careful about not having lotions on prior to radiation. No-one told me that until later on in my treatments, and I think that may have been why I had such bad burns.
